Stanley Kubrick scrolls through WorldStarHipHop and finds Minimalism Photography instead of Discover Weekly

NL Notes: Season 3 of Netflix's Chef's Table is tickling our food cinematography bones once again. We especially dug the Tim Raue & Ivan Orkin episodes (the unapologetically "egocentric" German and the Long-Islander changing the Ramen game). If you're fully sucked into the thought of being an outdoorsy person, we're big fans of  Field Mag, a digital publication at the crossroads of design & nature.   Ever wonder which weather service is the most accurate? Turns out, it varies based on where you're located. Find out on Forecast Advisor. Did you miss Volume 1 from this Past Friday? Our archive can be found at www.newlibrary.nyc/thelibrary.
